The other night, Rexroth came down to my home office for a conversation. As we were talking, however, I couldn’t help but notice his eyes glancing behind me to the bookshelf of client materials I keep on hand. “Those shelves are going to collapse. Soon,” he predicted. And, looking behind me, I couldn’t help but agree. When they get all bowed like that? And what do you mean bookshelves aren’t meant to be stacked two deep with hardcovers, and piled high with paperbacks?
So, in an effort to make some space, and save my existing shelves, I’m reorganizing, and hoping to find new homes for some well-loved books.
And that’s where you come in! Are you a teen librarian looking to expand your collection? A teacher hoping to interest her classroom in some popular YA? Let me know! Tell me why you want this box of books, which includes a selection from my own clients as well as some titles from my own personal collection. I’ll pick one winner next week for the whole lot, so feel free to wow me with your entry. Videos, pictures, haiku, limericks — all are welcome!
UPDATE: You guys are killing me with these stories. I want to send boxes of books to ALL of you, but I don’t have enough. Luckily, Jennifer Laughran, Barry Goldblatt and Robin Wasserman are stepping in with contributions as well, so we’ll be awarding FOUR boxes, at least!
